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)

Here's a place I found similar to Polynesia Trading Company and Maxi, if you and Chuck feel it's worth adding to the Tahiti Cruisers Guide. It's in the same building as the Faa'a Happy Market, but separate. Many of the same products as the others, pricing may vary a bit, some products a dollar or two more, others less. (Yes, i actually hit all three on the same day ) I was most excited to find the 10# box of Quaker Oats, old fashioned, whereas Poly Trading only had quick oats, both worked out to half the price per pound as what I find in every magazin.
