SOUTH LAKE TAHOE (CBS13) — The Coast Guard shut down an illegal charter boat in Lake Tahoe this weekend.
They say the 48-foot boat was cruising around Emerald Bay with 19 people on board. The Coast Guard says the boat did not have the proper license or permits.
Fines can range up to $80,000 for violations.
Chartered boat rides with more than six passengers should ask the boat captain about their compliance with Coast Guard regulations, a release said.
