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)

Two options with ECO car

1. They will deliver the car to you with all the paperwork and CC machine - easy and fast

2. They will pick you up and take you to the airport office - This may take hours like it did for us. Plus we had to return it to them again another hour.

First time we rented from them they came to the Papeete Marina and we saw option #1 as quick, efficient and only took about 10 minutes

Second time we rented they picked us up and transported us to their airport office. This took 2 hours with traffic, 10 people in front of us when we arrived. Plus we had to return the car to the airport office as well - another hour++ wasted.
