Since arriving in Papeete to do some boat projects, we found ourselves “reinventing the wheel” - asking the same questions hundreds of others have asked - in trying to track down parts, services, doctors, dentists, etc.
We have often said we wished there were a Cruiser’s Guide to Tahiti and French Polynesia modeled after the valuable Panama City Cruisers Guide put together by Debi Shaimas on SV Serenity.
So we started compiling this one and what we have so far is now available online and downloadable as a pdf.

Buses

Public Transport

There are no subways or train lines in Tahiti: only buses and taxis. To be able to go around by bus is more art than science and I haven't been able to understand how it works yet. But I know some people who would only travel by bus. These are people who usually are not in a rush to go anywhere. Plan around 1 hour to get from Marina Taina to the city center
