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)

Lee Sui has two locations. One is a small but very convenient hardware if you’re at the Marina Papeete. It is a block off the main road along the harbour Blvd Pomare and a couple blocks towards the market from Prince Hanoi.

The second shop is on Avenue George Clemenceau maybe 250meter east of the big traffic circle (three blocks from the waterfront).  General hardware but also carry 2 part poly urathane and other paints.  Reasonable selecttion of tools.
