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 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

Background: For many years Carreira was the go to store for Sunbrella and canvas supplies in Papeete. During the pandemic they closed down.
In Dec 2020 it was reported they moved. A cruiser obtained the new number and called them.
Anyway, I just spoke to Sébastien the guys that runs Carreira, which I think is under a different name. He gave his email, since they are in Taravao now, and he doesn't speak much english he prefers to deal with people by email with details or what they need rather then the phone...
Wide stock of sunbrella, fasteners, webbing, thread, foam open cell and nonwater retaining foam. They will also reburish boat interiors. Mark Bland is best contact with reasonable English.
