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)

 If anyone ever needs a US document notarized, you can do it online now.
Earlier, I had to make an appointment at a US Embassy, have my shoes, ears and underwear checked for bombs (half joking) and pay $50 per signature. One document had 12 signatures - you do the math.
With this service, you just need a webcam and a somewhat decent internet connection, which admittedly is hard here. There are other companies and I have no connection to this one, but point is you don't need to go to the US Embassy for this nowadays.
