Ocean Mysteries with Jeff Corwin is an Emmy Award winning 30-minute show which follows host Jeff Corwin's travels and works in conjunction with the Georgia Aquarium. It has been airing since 2011 to 2016 on Saturday mornings on ABC affiliates as part of the nature-oriented programming block called Litton's Weekend Adventure along with complementary stablemates Jack Hanna's Wild Countdown, Born to Explore with Richard Wiese, and Sea Rescue.

The show's message of conservation, ocean research, and preserving ocean and/or ocean adjacent habitats are central to each episode, with each episode generally featuring one or two ocean-dwelling or near ocean-dwelling species. Species featured have included various varieties of pinniped (seals, sea lions and walrus), dolphin, penguins, sea turtles, sting and eagle rays, iguanas, flightless birds of New Zealand, North American salmon, and whale sharks. Opening and closing segments generally take place within the environs of the Georgia Aquarium introducing same and/or similar species to be profiled on that episode from distant locations such as Southern Africa, California, Hawaii, Alaska, Canada (specifically British Columbia and Quebec), Australia, New Zealand, Florida, the Caribbean Sea, Puerto Rico, the Gulf of Mexico, and Grand Cayman Island.

In the 2014 Daytime Emmy Awards, the program won Outstanding Travel Program and the program's director, Patrick Greene, won an Emmy Award for Outstanding Directing In A Lifestyle/Culinary Program.[1]
