The location: Hannah at seaplane
Here is a photo of the dock that I shot in 2012:
Here is an aerial photo of the location. Here is a Google StreetView. And here is a map link.
(The boat in the photo above is docked roughly where the seaplane was docked in the scene.)
If you want to
visit the spot, be sure to check a map -- the jigsaw puzzle shape of the marina can get a
little confusing without one. And finding this dock can get tricky, because there is more than one Marina Drive in this area. In fact, this Marina Drive actually crosses another one: N. Marina Drive, which itself later turns into E. Marina Drive.
All of these Marina Drives run along outside edge of the Alamitos Marina, marking its northern and eastern borders.
This jetty is tucked away behind the Alamitos Landing shopping/dining center.
Don't confuse this
Alamitos Marina with Long Beach's Shoreline Marina (another spot where Dexter films a lot). The two marinas are
five miles apart. Alamitos Marina is just west of Pacific Coast Highway,
right across the San Gabriel River channel from Seal Beach.
Q. How the heck did you figure out where it was?
A. I was just at this dock a few months earlier, shooting photos of this dock for that Issac/Louis scene.
I must admit that when I first saw the scene, I assumed it was probably the same dock off Appian Way that they had used for the previous yacht scenes with Hannah. But as they spun the camera around, I got a better view of Naples Island across the water, and the Marine Bureau building above, and it became obvious where it was.
