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)

5-2024 SV Ticket to Ride I wanted to follow up and let everyone know that we had a great experience with Kim Fa and the prices were great. I worked with both Jo-Ann and Annick. You can contact them directly using these email addresses: or They can give you a list of spirits and wines available to order from or they can help you with choices. We decided on our order, paid by credit card and had the delivery just a few days later. Remember you are restricted to having this delivered just before leaving the country and you will need to provide the clearance paperwork. We were very pleased with the service. Jo-Ann also has WhatsApp if you need to speak on the phone. For those who do not speak French, Jo-Ann does speak English.
