The location: Dexter tries to sell his boat
This area is at the far south end of the Los Cerritos channel, where that channel empties into the Marine Stadium, on the west side of the private Marina Pacifica condo community.
It can be rather tricky to find.
have to take Marina Drive northwest of 2nd Street, then follow the
crooked road that divides the Marina Pacifica condos from a large
seaside parking lot. When you come to the end of that road, you will see
the boats docked in the water just offshore.
It's right across the water (northwest of) Mother's Beach (Marina Park), where they filmed the yoga class scene, and also from the Marine Stadium parking lot where they filmed the awkward food truck date with Cassie.
On the other (southeast) side of the 2nd Street Bridge is the dock where Hannah's hubby (Miles) parked his yacht, as well as the other dock where they filmed the sea plane scene.
It's also reasonably close to Hannah's hotel and Vogel's house.
I shot the photos below in Sept. 2013.

A. In the early seasons, I
usually had to hunt down the locations after viewing the episodes, using
clues from the various scenes. By the now, though, I've developed
a small group of fans, spies & tipsters who kept an
eye out for Dexter filming in their neighborhoods, and let me know in advance when something is about to film there.
This tip came from Rick. (Thanks, Rick!)
