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 160+ pages of information on vendors and services in Papeete and some businesses in Mo'orea and Raiatea. 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 Maps.me (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) gmail.com

From SV Larka

Have just completed 12 day haul out for bottom paint etc.

Can highly recommend Yvan and his team (87 74 85 60). Very careful with 
haulout on hydraulic propped trailer (no boat hoist)

Also excellent engineer - Patrick Heintre 87 300 625 
(multi-meca@mail.pf) has lathe facilities and spares for Perkins engines.

Supermarket 2k away, chandlers 3k, with v large Ace hardware store another 1k.

Best to buy requirements from Michel B at Tiana Marina (87 74 10 02) 
and/or in Papeete and arrive there fully stocked.

It rains there occasionally!
