The cause of the crash is under investigation

The plane was being towed away by a boat. PortMiami officials said the crash has not affected cruise schedules. Officials didn’t immediately say who owned the plane or what caused the crash.

The FAA and the National Transportation Safety Board will investigate.

In December 2005, Chalk’s Ocean Airways Flight 101 crashed in Government Cut, just a few hundred yards from the site of Friday’s crash. The 2005 seaplane crash killed 18 passengers and two crewmembers.
