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)

Dr Ruiz
Paofi Clinic

5-21 SV Kiapa Nui taken from a report of numerous dermatologists that they have seen.

Dr. Ruiz speaks a bit of English but more than what she leads on to speak and understand. She's a sweet doctor in my opinion. She takes her time with you. I spent a whole hour with her as she cut out a spot that made me uneasy and we sent it to the lab. She also froze off what I asked her to freeze off. She took her time to look over my skin but did not check the bottoms of the feet and ears. I was told by Dr. Fennira that she is very good a surgically removing spots, her speciality is removing spots on the face.
