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 Jacaranda We can highly recommend Corine for a personal tour of Tahiti. She will pick you up and take you all around the island. Her knowledge of all things Polynesian is amazing. She has a PHD in Polynesian Languages & Civilization. She is fluent in English

Excellent personalized tour covering the entire island of Tahiti. Corinne is very knowledgeable and loves to share her vast knowledge in a very personable tour. The tour is maximum of 4 people because that is how many fit into her car. J Corrine is an absolutely lovely lady born in Tahiti. She has good humor and speaks excellent English. Corinne will tailor the trip to your needs. Some of the highlights: waterfalls, a cave, gardens, ancient temple, Polynesian stories, different plants and their medicinal uses, beaches and more. The tour is relaxing and not rushed.

Our tour started at 8:00am and ended around 5:30pm (we were back around 6:00pm ). Corinne included a bottle of water for each of us. Lunch was at a local restaurant and was fabulous and reasonably priced (not included in fee). Part of the fun was that Corinne added a few personal stops along the way; a veggie stand that she likes, a chocolate shop and a local artisan trinket store near the restaurant. If you book directly through Corinne the fee is a bit lower than booking through other sources. We highly recommend this tour.
