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)

SV Mary Ann - Stayed there 3 weeks while recovering from a broken wrist
Laurence has a lovely Polynesia home on the lagoon just south of Marina Taina.  She has a dingy dock easily accessible from the marina area or it's an easy 10 minute walk. The area is walled with an electric gate. The bedroom is air conditioned.  You have full access to her kitchen and she provides the ingredients for a do-it-yourself breakfast.  She is a very kind and generous hostess who speaks French and English. There is a pool, several friendly dogs, a cat and sitting in the garden you get a lovely view of Moorea.  The Papeete bus stops near her place.  She can also be booked via Air B&B.
