I don't shoot negatives underwater anymore, just high speed or B&W topside.

People I've talked to either love it or think it's a waste of time and money. It depends on what they are comparing it to.
Kodak developed a proprietary algorithm for adjusting u/w shots. The process is done at Dale Labs in Florida. The same evaluative process can be done manually by the person processing your film locally. If your prints are done by such a person, the results will be similar to the Sea Processing.
Now, if it is done by the pimply faced 16 year old in full auto mode, your prints are machine evaluated and processed just like your kid's birthday party shots. You can always ask, but you never know.
When I shot u/w print film, I used the local lab filled with a bunch of old nasty coots who have been doing this for billions of years and got great results, so I never bothered trying Sea Processing.
I would also get the film scanned to disk at the same time. I could then do my own editing and printing if I like.
Hey, if you don't like the prints, you can always have them redone.
Sea Processing is your best bet for best results on the first try.
