OCEANSIDE, Calif. (KGTV) - Months after beach dredging was canceled in Oceanside, charter boat businesses say they're feeling the pain.

The Army Corps of Engineers is responsible for the annual job but did not get the required permit in time.

Owners of two companies, Sailing Blue Water Charters and Pacific Marine Charters, have both been forced to cancel trips this week due to dangerous conditions.

They say a south swell combined with sand build-up is making conditions to dangerous to take guests out.
