Recs for lobster delivery from Maine

I am thinking of ordering lobsters from Maine for Christmas dinner and would love to hear of others experiences or recommendations for best companies to order from. We have bought them in past years from a very good nearby fish store. But after a gluttonous lobster filled vacation in Maine last summer, I really noticed that the lobsters were so much better, sweeter, more tender straight from the ocean - instead of sitting in tanks at a fish store. I'd be ordering 2 or 3 to be delivered to CT.
Thoughts and recs appreciated. Thanks.
I have used both of the recommendations,Maine Lobster Direct and LobsterGram.
Both have been excellent for lobster sent as gifts.
I don't understand why someone in CT would have to mail order lobsters from Maine. Aside from the fact that you are paying more than twice as much for the pleasure of at least 50% loss from heads/shell. The link for that business shows 1.8 lb as a large which doesn't yield all that much meat. If you're not as happy with your great seafood store because they sit in tanks. Call ahead of time and meet the delivery truck fresh off the boat. That's what we did last time. $5.99 for 3 pounders and up. Guess that Maine lobster must be mighty sweet to pay for all that waste? This is a serious question because I really am curious.
The reason I brought this up is because CT is only a hop skip & jump away from ME. Not like you're from TX or KS and have no choice..:-) But now I see others from the east coast are weighing in:-)
