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)

Mobil Station Cooks Bay
Tuesday Drop Off

You can drop off your empty propane bottle with them.

5-24 SV Hana I confirmed yesterday the propane truck comes to the Mobil station in Pao Pao on Tuesdays. They will take your tank to PPT and bring it back the following Tuesday. Another option, if one is in a hurry, would be to see if one of the daily couriers that run between MOZ and PPT would take it to the gas plant and get it filled for you the same day.
