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)

3-2021 SV Auntie Recommended by friends of friends. Made appointment by phone for 2 days in future, arrived 30 mins before scheduled appt, receptionist had no record of appointment but remembered the phone call, re-scheduled me for 11 days in future. While I was pondering the wisdom of returning, I asked 1 other patient In waiting room if they thought the doctor was good. Reply was not so much, “it takes him 10 appointments to do what other clinics can do in 2 appointments”. Never saw doctor, no first hand knowledge, receptionist not friendly or helpful, made appointment at a different clinic.

Side note: I’ve learned it is best to go to the clinic /office to make the initial appointment as you then have a piece of paper to show receptionists.
