Adding flashes/strobes. How?

I own the Ikelite housing for the 5D Mark III and love it to pieces!  I primarily do shoots in swimming pools, and if possible I'd like to be able to add light from outside the water to create sunbeam effects.  I know that there are underwater strobes/flashes available, but can you recommend a way that I can trigger my existing 600EX-RTs and/or Alien Bees from the Ikelite housing?  Perhaps via a long sync cord?  Or is there even a wireless solution?  The strobes/flashes would, of course, be out of the water and weighed down so that they wouldn't be pulled into the water.

I'm new to the whole concept of adding light to underwater shots and would appreciate any guidance you could give me!
