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)

He speaks English

9-2020 SV Shiraz Young French dentist. Speaks good English. Modern clean facility on the first floor. I recommend him.

We both had dental work, crowns and extraction. Very satisfied. Near Cathedral Center City.  Turn up the street that Air Tahiti is on and about 3/4 same side of the street next to a copy store is an entrance to his office - 1st floor (2nd floor to North Americans)

10-18 SV Little Wing
Can highly recommend Dr Maxence.

He is a very gentle and thorough dentist. I found that my french was not up to par to fully communicate some of the discussion about what needed to be done to have a root canal and crown.  Emailing was a great way to set up an appointment and discuss any concerns that one may have about any procedures.
I would certainly recommend Dr. Sand Maxence for any dental work.
