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)

Tahiti Sails

For canvas work, Tahiti Sails. Sebastian and his team did my dodger and bimini for my Jeanneau 53, and the work exceeded my already extremely high expectations.

12-2020 SV Barracuda of Islay Tahiti Sails have just made us a smart new spray hood for Barracuda, and it’s actually better than the original - we’re very pleased with it. Guillaume is great to work with: very professional, listens well, does what he promises, is clear about timescales and costs, and pays attention to detail. All this and he speaks good English too. NB We were warned that our fabric would take six weeks to arrive from NZ - so worth allowing plenty of time for canvas work.
