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)

We have a shop at my home in the mountain in Punaauia but I can give you the prices for each item that you need from our local catalog ‘IE Marine. Mainly the items in our local catalog are in stock in Tahiti. It requires shipping delay for the items from the Accastillage Diffusion catalog. The price list on-line is not yet available but will be soon.

List me all references of items you need and I send you the prices, otherwise if you are interested to have a look in our store, we can pick up you freely.

Also we deliver freely the items on your sailboat.

Have a good day.

This company came by yesterday to hand out brochures. I think it might be a start-up but I am not sure. Have you heard of them? I am not making a recommendation as we have not used them but they do offer some services I thought you might want to add to your guide. They offer express delivery anywhere within French Polynesia and will deliver to the boat in Tahiti. He has in stock items and can order items from a catalog. They offer a free ride to their store as well. The catalog is on their FaceBook page. Info below.
