The pilot was receiving instruction for a seaplane rating. Three water landings were made in Peconic Bay. During the fourth approach, while downwind at a height of 100 feet, the instructor simulated an engine failure by pulling the power lever back to idle. The pilot turned to land into the wind and was joined on the controls by the instructor. Power was not added and the Caravan landed hard in a descending turn. Upon landing, the left float separated from the airplane, and the airplane subsequently sank. The occupants were rescued by a fisherman.

Probable Cause:

PROBABLE CAUSE: "The flight instructor's improper flare and his inadequate remedial action, which resulted in a hard landing."
