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)

10-2019 (Counting Stars) Fakarava Yacht Services wasted my time. In communication with them for several days, even communicating 1 hour before the appointment. Anchored in the agreed spot. Then they stopped communicating. I never saw them.  

5-2019 (Jacaranda) - We have used them over the years to purchase diesel, gas, refill propane and obtain use of their wifi. We have also rented bicycles from them as well. Have always been responsive to us and even came by the boat to pick up laundry.
