Guest SpeakerSpeakers Bureau

Need a speaker for your yacht club or professional organization? Ask one of our Coast Guard-licensed captains. CAPCA's Speakers Bureau provides them as a public service to the maritime community. There is no speaking fee or charge.

Our members have a wealth of experience -- on the water, in classrooms, and online -- that gives them the knowledge and background to provide presentations on a host of maritime-related topics.
