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 also have a sugar cane juice stand next to the Carrefour in Punaaia (close to Taina) where they offer rum in bulk (‘en vrac’) in 5 and 10 liter jugs, as well as flavored rums. When buying in bulk, you get a significant discount off their white and dark rums - about 30% off. Call or message in advance to pick up your order at their stand. Cash only.
They also ship to other islands using maritime freight for a modest fee. We got our order in Fakarava on the Cobia, and payed through local bank transfer.
