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)

Lovely Tahitian couple that does a super job cleaning inside lockers and polishing stainless stancheons and rigging. Available on weekends only. Very reliable. If weather is iffy, they call day before to confirm you still want the work done. Best work I’ve seen. Their rate as of Jan 2023 is 1200 CPF per person per hour. Limited english but enough to communicate. If you are anchored or on a mooring, you will need to meet them at a marina and give them a ride to your boat. Merriana cell: .
