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 160+ pages of information on vendors and services in Papeete and some businesses in Mo'orea and Raiatea. 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 Maps.me (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) gmail.com

Campgaz Cooking Bottles

Island: Tahiti

We have had a number of folks looking for the larger blue bottles called Campgaz. After much searching including going to the Gaz plant in Fare Ute they were unable to find ones for sale.

Please let me know if you find these for sale. See picture

We tried to buy one in Tahiti even visiting Tahiti Gas but couldn’t get one. You can get them refilled in Tahiti but be aware if considered too rusty they won’t do it. We haven’t been able to get the Camping Gaz refilled in Hauhine or Bora Bora. Purchased 13kg bottle instead and have decanted into our three Camping Gaz bottles. Good luck
