Bounce flash underwater
I don't hesitate to use bounced flash when photographing above water but it had never considered it underwater.
On a recent dive on the ex HMAS Canberra frigate, in less than perfect vis, I tried a few shots with the strobe pointing up at the ceiling of the wheelhouse. The results were a great improvement over direct flash which produced bad backscatter.
Top image is direct flash, single strobe.
Lower image is the bounced flash version.
