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)

Ok ,the wonderful, very wonderful dentist here in Raiatea..very young
beautiful Tahitian woman speaks gorgeous English (daughter of mixed
marriage- mother is native English speaker). Dr. Blais Rahiti : her office
is 7 kilometers south of uturoa in Avera where there is a pharmacy and
medical clinic. There is a Beach where you can dinghy to right next to her
clinic which is next to the post office. Avera is the first town south of
the bay Vairahi...which is the bay where the Trois cascades hike starts.
There are some moorings there and some mud/ sand to anchor in. There is
also a small fish coop marina where you can leave dinghy and get fresh
water there at Vairahi. Her cabinet number is 87 26 65 62...the only
downside is Miri ( her assistant- who answers the phone, does speak very
little English so it can be a bit challenging to make apptmts and they are
busy because she is so good (ie. Gentle,small hands and very conscious
about pain management, clear speaking, and very knowledgeable with a brand
new office and equipment..sonic cleaning and camera x-ray all right
