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)

 Ziskakan.  Adrian at Taina Boat Watch did an excellent job taking care of our boat while we spent time away from Tahiti. He was communicative, knowledgeable, and always gave us professional service, sending us regular updates with any important information and making sure that our boat was in tip top shape for our return. Due to personal matters we had to leave our boat empty for six months per year for a number of years. It gave us tremendous peace of mind to know that we had someone with Adrian’s work ethic and expertise to care for it while we were away.
