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)

(I know this is a Raymarine report but also applies to STH in general)

STH Marine are the authorized dealers for Raymarine (as well as other brands). Our two chart plotters failed and Raymarine agreed to replace them under warranty. When ordering the replacement parts from France, STH forgot several items which delayed the installation by about a month.

STH Marine installed a new remote handset for my VHF but forgot to install the software update that is needed for it to function. I didn’t realize this until we were about to leave and didn’t want to risk a problem with a software update at that point. I reinstalled the old handset and will deal with the issue in NZ.
