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)

Heimmediately responded and confirmed the booking. philo was fantastic, sending a photo of her vehicle (mid size SUV) ahead of time, reconfirming the time and location prior to pick-up, and immediately responding to any questions. she arrived at the marina early, exactly where i had requested next to the guard station. her english is basic (far better than my french), but adequate. i used google translate to coordinate with her via whatsapp in french and everything was fine.
