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)

We got made led light strips with cable for the engine room and for under the spreaders at The Led Shop in Avenue Prince Hinoi, just across the strees from the Shell Station and Hotel Tahiti Nui. Owner speaks English. It was not expensive – about 2000 xpf for a 50cm long light strip with cable, made the same day or the day after. He was a bit sloppy on the gluing, but everything works fine, so the only problem was estethically. Had to pay cash.
