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)

They are dealers for Volvo, carry inflatable boats, sizable stock of scuba equipment, carry Liros line, international paint and epoxies,  very limited on sail boat hardware, some electric supplies such as switches, breakers. They stock some marine stove parts including the elusive (when you need one) thermo-coupling. A small range of marine electronics. Several staff speak English but they are not really knowledgeable.  

Nautisport has a dedicated team for life rafts. Not cheap..

Nautisport has a large selection of fishing gear and lures

They stock Lofran horizontal and vertical windlasses.  Not sure if they repair.

9-2019 Coral Trekker They have a good selection of parts also small items on the engine and Z- drive

5-19 S/V Nehenehe
TahitiSport (NautiSport): Good store but for the size... they don't carry much marine chandlery as Ocean 2000. Great SCUBA selection and service. Almost no English spoken here. Rated a 8 out of 10
