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)

R.E.G Climatisation

1-22 SV Sea Bear Today we returned to Marina Papeete from Fakarava, and on arrival at the dock, I looked in your guide for someone to take a look at our air conditioners which haven't worked for the past 18 months. I goggled on line and found R.E.G. climatisation. I can't remember the man's name but he was downtown and came to our boat within 20 minutes. He was a lovely local man who spoke only a little bit of english, but with google translate, we managed well to explain the issues. He had both aircons up and running within 2 hours, and his price was very reasonable. He was very professional and took his time to properly evaluate the units. Even went the extra mile to discuss possible future issues and what we could do about them should they arise. As well, he returned with a cannister of refrigerant for us to use at a future date if needed. He said he was happy to also consult online if we had any further issues. All in all a great experience and highly recommended!
