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 160+ pages of information on vendors and services in Papeete and some businesses in Mo'orea and Raiatea. 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 Maps.me (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) gmail.com

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.
