    About Us

    Captain John Nicolai is one of Maine’s most knowledgeable and entertaining lobster experts. The Captain has made it his mission to help sustain Maine’s lobster fishery by promoting its rich history and traditions, and teaching the importance of preserving the State’s lobster population. His belief is that the process starts by educating people.

    When you think Maine, you think Lobsters. But what do you really know about lobsters other than they are a most succulent dinner item? Today, more and more people are interested in learning how their food came to their dinner table and if it got there in a sustainable manner. Enter Captain John and Lobster Talk...

    In his one hour presentation, he talks about all of that and more. What better way to entertain groups than having a fisherman in orange overalls, carrying his tools of the trade (trap, buoy, measuring tools. etc.) (think authenticity) show up before or after a dinner, business function, or educational event to get people’s curiosity amped up and ready for something different and unexpected.

    For non-English speaking groups, Captain John (being both American and French) speaks fluent French and may even have access to Chinese or Japanese translators if needed.

    The speaker fee for a one hour lecture starts at $500. Many factors influence the cost (number of guests, location, etc.) Special discounts are offered to tour operators, event organizers, those in the hospitality industry and non-profits. For more information and to check on availability, please contact Captain John today.
