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 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

5-21 SV Kiapa Nui - I recently saw Dr. Fennira per seeing her name in the TCG...thank you. :) She was as close to an derm you'd find in California. The best so far out here. She took her time, she went over almost EVERY piece of skin (she even slid my boobs out from my bikini top and looked underneath), bottoms of feet and she looked closely at the ears. The only place she actually didn't look was my nor Ryan's bum. She zapped me 34 times. She speaks great English and is keen to practice more and more. She likes having foreigners coming in and the interactions. She listens, she explains, and understands other methods like using Efedex but uses that gnarly cream as a last resort. I had a spot on my arm that appeared AFTER using Efedex so she zapped it about 4 LONG times and really got it. She wants to see me again in 2 months for that specific spot and if it reappears she wants to take a biopsy. She was extremely thorough. She will cut out spots if needed anywhere on the body except for the face.  


SV Tintamarre I saw a Dr Fennira at this clinic. Very pleasant lady, who spoke good English. Currently (in covid times) easy to get an appointment. If treatment is required the additional cost over a check up is only a few dollars.
