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)

ZwerfCat We have been over half a year in Tikehau and at some point we really liked to get some stuff from Tahiti. I'm super happy with the person I found to do shopping. He is really helpful, fast AND has a Revolut bank account (you can open such an account in a breeze online yourself if you don't have one yet). So payment is instantly. He also accepts PayPal. If you use Signal or WhatsApp, he takes pictures to ask you which item you meant if it wasn't clear. And he uses a handy shopping list in which you can upload pictures of the item yourself. There is no cash machine in Tikehau and we wanted more cash, so he has been taking money several times for us and just put it in the groceries in an envelope. He also went twice to Gondrand to collect our packages we ordered and added them to the Dory as well. Easy because Gondrand only has local bank account so it's more difficult to pay them. I think he will do anything you want. Really helpful and nice. Speaks very well English. So I highly recommend him:
