If you are paying loadds of money you can get some good quality stuff with a waterproof case.
For me though, I don't trust myself with anything expensive out on the water, so went for a cheapie little digital camera plus a waterproof (camera) bag from WalMart. It does the job, and if I do happen to lose it, not too much of a loss!
Cost me about $40 in total

The amount of MegaPixels are more of an advertising ploy than anything else when it comes to digital still cameras. Unless you intend to make 8x10 or larger enlargements, or want to crop the pic excessively, anything more than 3-4 Mega Pixels is a waste of money. If you intend to email photos or post them on most websites you will be either taking the photos at the lowest camera resolution setting or downsizing the file size afterward. With video camcorders, the size of the mega pixel CCD image sensor is more important. Get the highest number you can afford. Also look for at least 3x OPTICAL zoom for a still camera and 10x for a video camera. Forget about what the DIGITAL zoom specs are. Some cameras advertize up to 1000 power digital zoom. Believe me, it is totally useless. Pentex makes a really nice totally waterproof digital camera. It is the OPTIO WPi. For a video camcorder I would recommend the Panasonic PV-GS19. I waited outside BestBuy all night, for the day after Thanksgiving sale, to get one for my GF for $250. With the $50 factory rebate it will only cost me $200.
