We’re welcoming a third Sam to our team! Sam Nowinski grew up just a few hours away from Sanibel in Indian Rocks Beach, Florida, where she fell in love with the ocean at a young age. Learn more about her below…


Where are you from?

Indian Rocks Beach, Florida

Where did you go to school and what did you study? 

I went to the University of West Florida and studied marine biology with a minor in professional education.

Is there something about working at Sanibel Sea School that you are looking most forward to? 

I’m looking forward to being by the ocean every day and teaching others about how amazing it is!

What do you like to do during your time off? 

In my free time, you can find me outdoors. I love hiking, running, laying in my hammock on the beach, or spending time with my cat, Fin!

Favorite sea creature: 

Spotted eagle rays, because they are so majestic!

What's the best music for a weekend at the beach? 

The Wheeland Brothers

If you could visit any marine ecosystem on the planet, where would you go? 

I’d love to explore and dive the Maldives, which are islands located in the Indian Ocean.

Is there anything else you'd like to share about yourself? 

I love experiencing new things and have a long bucket list that I hope to complete some day!      

Thanks, Sam N.!
