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)

Dominique is now independent and is not part of STH.  

Highly recommend him for Diesel work

9-18 SV Airborne  
Dominque is a diesel and electrical mechanic… He lives on Moorea, but works in Papeete. He is associated with STH in Papeete and they had referred us to him when we had engine issues in Moorea. He came out on a Sunday to our boat to help us. When we continued to have issues he met us at the dock when we arrived in Papeete for further  diagnosis and repairs. Great service. Speaks English and French. I’m not sure if he is an STH employee or a sub contractor, but there is dome connection to STH (Yanmar dealer).

Amelie's agent Laurent recommend Dominique and was he contacted directly.

Stephen highly recommends Dominique after using him to remove and install a generator. He always showed up on time, great work ethic and did a wonderful job. 6000xpf per hour
