DEXTER Filming Locations - hundreds of actual places where the TV show Dexter was filmed.

The location: Dexter & Hannah on his boat

Q. What is it supposed to be on the show?

    A. An ocean or bay.

Q. Where is it supposed to be on the show?

    A. Somewhere off the Miami coast. Either in the Atlantic Ocean or pehaps Biscayne Bay

Q. When did we see it on the show?

    A. In Episode 9, of Season 7, "Helter Skelter".

    The episode opens with Dexter and Hannah out on his boat, speeding over the waves.

    It soon becomes evident that Hannah isn't enjoying herself, and is either seasick, afraid of the water, or both.

    She tells Dexter a story about how her father threw her in the water, when she was a child, to force her to swim, and she almost drowned.

Q. What is it actually in real life?

    A. The Pacific Ocean.

Q. Where can I find it in real life?

    A. This is actually the waters off the coast of Long Beach, California.

    To be more specific, they are offshore near the Shoreline Marina, southeast of downtown Long Beach and east of the Queen Mary.

    You can spot several Long Beach landmarks on the horizon in the screencap below:

    One is the International Tower, at 700 E. Ocean Blvd, used this season on the show as Viktor's apartment tower.

    Next door to it is the distinctive Villa Riviera, an historic 1929 building at 800 E. Ocean Blvd.

    And farther to the right is the Ocean Club condo tower, at 1310 E. Ocean Blvd.

Here is an aerial photo of those locations and Dexter's approximate location.

For the record, if you've ever wondered what make & model the Slice of Life is, it's a Century 2901 Center Console(See photos)

At least when they're filming here in Southern California.

Early on, when they were actually filming in Miami, they used to use a Whitewater 28' with a center console as the Slice of Life.

The two boats are similar enough in appearance that the casual, non-boating viewer probably wouldn't notice the difference.

Q. How the heck did you figure out where it was?

    A.  This wasn't hard.  The skyline of downtown Long Beach and Ocean Blvd is easy to recognize once you know it.  And I know it well.
