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 Papeete 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.

Marcia Davock Tahiti Cruising Guide
Out of print and the shore based info is really out of date BUT the water info is still the best. Covers the Societies. One of the best guide books out for navigation even though it's very old
