Many people mistakenly believe that they can only be charged with driving under the influence when they are driving a motor vehicle. This, in fact, is not the case. A person may also be charged under the California Navigation and Harbors Code Section 655.

California Navigation and Harbors Code Section 655 states in pertinent part:

(b) No person shall operate any vessel or manipulate water skis, an aquaplane, or a similar device while under the influence of an alcoholic beverage, any drug, or the combined influence of an alcoholic beverage and any drug. (c) No person shall operate any recreational vessel or manipulate any water skis, aquaplane, or similar device if the person has an alcohol concentration of 0.08 percent or more in his or her blood. (d) No person shall operate any vessel other than a recreational vessel if the person has an alcohol concentration of 0.04 percent or more in his or her blood.
