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 Laurent Sautel

Island: Tahiti


From SV Freevol 8-2019
Dr Sautelis a very skilled surgeon in dentistry. He did his studies in USA so I guess he should speak good english.
He did  the implants on Bernard both on the upper and bottom jaws. He did the stitching then took the stitchs away and then took the print for positionning the new teeth after verifiing every thing had sealed properly. Bernard was very pleased with his job and found him friendly.
His former dentist was there to learn how to do it and she finished the job by placing the new teeth. All this took some time because of the healing of the jaw bone.

He is located on the Pamatai hill in Faa'a, I think there is a bus that goes there from Papeete
