For Services and Resources in French Polynesia

The Tahiti Cruisers Guide is brought to you by Julien Desmont from Xperimental and Chuck Houlihan from Jacaranda. Starting as an idea based on the very successful Panama City Cruisers guide, it has evolved into 200+ pages of information on vendors and services throughout French Polynesia. In January 2018, we added GPS coordinates and links to Google Maps to assist in locating businesses.

Downloading the guide and GPS map coordinates will facilitate using the guide offline. The coordinates will work for either (best for Papeete) or Google Maps.

Especially thankful to John (SV Mary Ann II) and Steve (SV Ocean Star) for their huge effort in supplying a vast amount of information for the guide.

The guide is a community effort. Updates and new additions are greatly appreciated. If you find the guide useful or find something that needs updating please drop us a note at tahiticruisersguide (AT)

SV Barracuda 10-2020  Dr Carpentier is a general doctor, but with an interest in diving-related/hyperbaric medicine. Appointments not often needed. We needed a prescription; we called up, were told to come right round and within 15 minutes were in his office. After examination, the prescription and useful advice were issued and we were on our way for what seems the standard consultation fee of 3,600 xpf. His office is at the ocean end of Rue Paul Gauguin, right next door to the big Pharmacie du Port, near Papeete marina.
