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)

Can do Hydros, repair compressors and fill tanks

Sub Technology is Just past the Naval Base but before the Mobile Station on side street towards the harbour.  

Tanks in French Polynesia (legally) must be hydro teasted every five years and VIP tested annually.  You must have paperwork for each test or it will tecnically illegal for a shop to refill your tank.  

Another shop named Argos is at the far eastern end of Motu Uta and were re ommended by a scuba shop for hydro testing. Nautisport will handle the testing but at a premium.
