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)

They are in Arue  40436460

Carry acrylic -Plexiglass, Glass & Mirrors. Can custom cut, drill etc

They make mirrors and all things (Lexan). Will cut to size, round the corners and drill but their charges for drilling are outrageous.

Reported to carry Lexan(polycarbonate) but not sure.  If you have purchased Lexan from this shop please let me know.

Nice comparison between Lexan and Acrylic:

7-2022 SV Auntie  I had a temporary acrylic port lite made. David speaks English and was helpful, turn around time for a simple piece was quick, I gave them my pattern piece late Wednesday afternoon, finished piece was ready on Friday morning. I found the prices to be reasonable with the exception being the price for drilling holes is high. The material selection is a bit limited, for example the thickest glass for a mirror is 6 mm.
