Not Bimini. No courtesy flags so not outside US but otherwise a good guess.

The boats are not at anchor nor are they in slips but tied bow to stern. There are a couple of boats rafted together. There are two sports fishers millimg about. There are smaller craft there. There is one sailboat in the picture and there are quite a few boats in a small area.
From the first few clues: warm, English low lying no coutesy flags - Florida

Boats tied bow to stern etc. - they are on a sea wall

Two sports fishers milling - enclosed area

Plenty of big expensive fishing boats, small boats too - easy access to an urban centre

Sailboat - not a fishing derby, probably a cruiser.


So you are looking for a key or island in Florida with an enclosed harbour that has a sea wall all round near a major urban centre.

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

Looks like the boat is named "Fin Alley".

It also looks like Fin Alley Fishing Charters operates from the beach cities just south of West Palm Beach (Lake Worth / Boyton Beach / Delray Beach). But I canít match things up and I might be completely off track.

+ I have to be on a plane in the morning so I don't dare look too hard in case I figure it out

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

You got it Faster. A beautiful little spot in Biscayne Bay. Usually fairly empty with one to five baots on the sea wall. It's about 10 miles from Miami so on long weekend like the one in the picture people , mainly Miami Cubans flock to the key. I think I counted 40 boats in that little harbour.
