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)

Excellent English and very dependable.  She also does airport pickups as well.  No What’s App but does text.  

3/23 Comments from a recent FP FB request for taxi drivers:

She speaks English and knows Taina well. She’s dependable and will arrange your ride in advance.

Another vote for Emelie. Awesome chick

We use Taxi Emillie as well. Highly recommend

Yes she is great and we would always book a pickup by her when we departed even if it was months later. Never was late or missed a pickup.

Emilie is lovely, professional, friendly, and courteous. She showed up on time, has competitive rates (2000xpf +100xpf per bag from Marina Taina to airport). She greets you at the airport with a sign and a smile. You can reach her by phone or text. She is not on email or WhatsApp. She has a large gray van that can easily accommodate 5/6 people and all of their luggage.

We scheduled her to pick us up (2 weeks before) at the airport at 00:45.  She was waiting for us with a big smile.

Highly recommend her! (Jacaranda)
