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 Tahiti and French Polynesia 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.

Taina sells duty free fuel but you need to come into the fule dock with the boat.  Does not sell DF in jerry jugs. Gasoline or petrol is not sold duty free.

(Panache 7-2018)
Phil confirmed that they do not sell duty free fuel on the weekend. They are too busy with locals fueling up to mess around with the duty free paperwork.

In an "emergency" they will sell duty free, but they are not keen to do so. The fuel dock hours are 0630-1200, 1300-1600.
