For your camera, you might want to consider a Sea & Sea YS-03 set as it comes complete with a good quality sync cord and an ok tray and arm. We have a better set with the Inon S-2000. Remember that you need the complete package, not just a strobe. It doesn't work well just on a mount on top of...
We have lots of lighting packages with strobes or lights that work well with the Oly TG-6.
Kraken lights can also be used in "burst" mode emulating a strobe with a brief, higher output. But strobes like the Sea & Sea YS-03, Inon S-2000, or the Sea & Sea YS-D3 are well matched for the TG-6...

Been on them twice, but it's been a couple of years now. Good boat, very easy loading to smaller dive boat on hoist. Great food, good crew. Older boat, cabins are bunkbeds, and we had some complaints as to smelly toilets. It's a catamaran and pretty stable.
You might consider a Sony RX100V package as it has excellent video and is smaller and easier to handle for a newer diver like yourself. However it shoots excellent video.Once you get into interchangeable lens systems you'll be over your budget pretty fast.
Something like this:
Nothing is inside our webbing. It is 2 ton strength and all connections are box stitched. The parachute cord that goes to the tray is incredibly strong. I've never heard of one of ours breaking/tearing.
It's easy to use as it's stretchy nylon.
