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)

The inventory of Northern Lights parts available in French Polynesia is smaller than small.) Northern Lights parts come out of Seattle, Washington, but you cannot order direct from them. The quickest (and least expensive) way to get parts sent to French Polynesia from US is to order from Richard at Costal Marine. Costal Marine is right next door to Northern Lights in Seattle, they have a great working relationship, and most parts can be sent same day. Another bonus, Northern Lights - Costal Marine can ship directly to Tahiti (98713) using USPS International Priority which is considerably less expensive than DHL or FedEx, and takes the same amount of time. As usual, from Papeete, Tahiti Crew can pay customs and ship to any other island.
