Captain Marty Muns has worked in the Seafood industry for over 30 years. Growing up as a hunter and fisher, he got his start as a shrimp boat owner, shrimping the clear waters of the Crystal Coast. The Captain has always been a ‘go-getter’, with no dream too big in his mind. After eight years of shrimping, Marty’s next endeavor was entering the commercial fishing and tourism industry. In 1986, Captain Marty began offering narrated boat tours and deep sea fishing excursions on the ‘Mystery Tours’, a gorgeous double decker that held 121 passengers. In 1999, he expanded the business, custom building the “Lookout Express”, which took the title for the world’s largest speed boat and carried 150 passengers to and from local islands, including Shackleford Banks and Cape Lookout. Subsequently, in 2001 Mr. Muns yet again broke the mold, adding brunch and dinner dining options, as well as a party cruise and a DJ booth/dance floor to his third boat, the “Diamond City”. All in all, he successfully owned and operated these three multi-passenger boats, employing 80+ for over 22 years.
Captain Marty left the tourism industry in 2008 for some much needed down time. Always a worker, and never one to sit idly, eight years later the Captain is at it again. Following the food truck trend of 2016, in April of 2017, Marty Muns opened The Captain’s Kitchen. Bringing his work ethic and dedication to perfection along with him, he has crafted the perfect seafood menu. The Captain’s Kitchen offers fresh, local seafood at the lowest possible prices. Marty is one of a kind; an interesting man with a story to tell, he gives 100% to anything he does. Come over to Indian Beach today, say hello and try the best shrimp burger you’ve ever had!
