Since arriving in Papeete to do some boat projects, we found ourselves “reinventing the wheel” - asking the same questions hundreds of others have asked - in trying to track down parts, services, doctors, dentists, etc.
We have often said we wished there were a Cruiser’s Guide to Papeete modeled after the valuable Panama City Cruisers Guide put together by Debi Shaimas on SV Serenity.
So we started compiling this one and what we have so far is now available online and downloadable as a pdf.

Computer Repairs / Services


We needed to replace several failed consumer electronic items in Papeete. Tablets and Phones can be repaired near the Papeete Marina.  Carrefour has 1 and 2 gigabyte external hard drives at fairly reasonable prices.  We found a demonstration model, brand name laptop for $317 (US) at Carrefour with a two year in store warranty included.  A new Samsung smart phone built to IP67 military specs for waterproofness was only $272 (US) when purchased along with a Vini contract.
