good start to a possibly interesting image. Please see improvements.
It is a little unclear exactly what the subject is.
Too far from the subject.
Use of camera,
Well done with the exposure for the background
Some soft focus could be due to depth of field.
Background exposure (blue) is good. Too blue subject though. Needs a little more strobe light.
Looks a little soft.
The snapper shadowed us during the entire dive as if it were just another diver.

How to improve your photo
You must get closer to the subject underwater. Try to fill at lest 1/4 of the frame with the subject.
Use a higher shutter speed or f-stop to reduce blur on subject. Use the next higher ISO so that you can "stop down" your aperture for additional depth of field or be able to use a higher shutter speed. Shutter speeds for hand holding a camera should be at a minimum equal to or greater than the reciprocal of the focal length.
i.e. if using a 17mm lens then you must use at least 1/17th sec. Moving subjects will still blur though. 1/60th sec for moving subjects is a good minimum.
Add strobe light by increasing the strobe power or reducing the opening the aperture. Also, moving closer to the subject will render more strobe light on the subject.
