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)

Further comments on why some folks can download android app from play station and others can not.

Thanks to SV Hedonsim 1-22
NOT all Android phones can download the APP. IF you have a FP phone and it was purchased here, Google Play should allow you to download. BUT, if you have a Google account not based in FP, you will not see the App as being available. We have 2 phones, one with a Vini Sim and one a Google Fi. Neither is able to download the APP because our Google Acct. is not in FP. I spent considerable time trying to figure it out. Apparently you can change your Google Location and download it but you are only allowed to do that once per year.

Google Play it will not even show up. Go on the web to the Tere Tahiti site and click on "download the APP" and this is what you get IF you do not have a FP based account.

You can obtain the app for android here:
