Danger Bay is a Canadian television series, produced in Vancouver, with first-run episodes broadcast on CBC Television and The Disney Channel starting October 7, 1984.[1] Reruns of the show continued on The Disney Channel until 1996.[2][3] A total of 123 installments were filmed, ending in 1989; the series, perceived as wholesome, exciting fare for older children and adolescents, continued to be seen through the 1990s in many countries worldwide.

The series followed the exploits of the Roberts family: marine veterinarian Grant "Doc" Roberts and his children, Nicole and Jonah. Nearly every 30-minute episode featured the Vancouver Aquarium.
