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 arrived without appointment and he advised that he would see me but I would need to wait a bit so he could see his patients that had appointments. That is fair. We waited about 1 ½ hours. He spent about 30 minutes with me and gave me a requisition for various blood tests. We also made an appointment for the next morning to go over the results. The Lab is the next door over from his office.

Cost for this 1st visit was XPF 7000

The lab work was 3990 that included various blood work and urine tests.

They also gave me a code and password so I could view the results on-line later in the day. (as they did for later test including the Cat Scan. It even allowed me to download the actual Cat Scan!
