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)

Nuatisport Outboard Service (SAV) 689-4053-3070   They are an authorized Suzuki dealer. We needed a two year service on our outboard and I don’t like to change engine and lower gear oil over the water (the outboard is pretty much permanently connected to the dinghy – centre console). They came over and dropped off one of their staff who got in the dinghy with me to travel across the harbor (Papeete) to a boat ramp on the other side and they had a truck and trailer there to pull me out and take it to their service department. They then drove me back to Papeete Marine. The next day they delivered the dinghy back to Papeete marina and I then took them back to the boat ramp where we paid the bill. We tried to tip them but they refused. They are pretty much French only, so unless you speak French, find someone does to book your appointment. We got Franko at the marina to do that for us. Great service.
