Tiger Beach is only in 15 feet of water, so it is possible to shoot without flash, and use the magic filter. I prefer to use my strobes, even if it's just for some fill of the underside of the sharks. Mine were turned down to 1/8 power or at most 1/4.
I tried all my lenses, but I was happiest with my 17-55 for sharpness etc. (The last two at least were with this lens. Next time I will try a 16mm, because it's a little more compact, gives a wider view than the 17-55, but not too much like the 10.5, and is more compact. (Don't need extension ring or diopter).
I used manual or shutter priority.
