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)

 printing boat cards, business cards, leaflets... It is much cheaper to make it/print it somewhere else and ship it here...

I found out that printing here 100 business/boats cards will cost you around $80!!! That is hilarious!

I made our boat cards (500 pcs, double sided, color) online ( in our case vistaprint/nl for Holland) for 30 EUR for delivery in Holland. Our daughter sent it to us with a regular post in bubble envelope for 25 EUR. It took 2 weeks to arrive here. Tracking number is important for that because the envelope came to the post office by Marina Papeete. So, you have to see that your package arrived and go to pick it up. You have 2 weeks to pick it up. After that time, package is going back to the sender.
