Since arriving in Papeete to do some boat projects, we found ourselves “reinventing the wheel” - asking the same questions hundreds of others have asked - in trying to track down parts, services, doctors, dentists, etc.
We have often said we wished there were a Cruiser’s Guide to Tahiti and French Polynesia modeled after the valuable Panama City Cruisers Guide put together by Debi Shaimas on SV Serenity.
So we started compiling this one and what we have so far is now available online and downloadable as a pdf.

Diesel / Gas
Gas Station Cooks Bay Mo'orea (Duty Free)
The gas station in Cooks Bay does sell duty free fuel but you need to pay in cash.
As of 4-18 the pump on the end of the dock is not working for diesel and you will need to Jerry Jug from the station.
