If you are just getting started, a Go Pro really is a cost effective way to go.

+1 on Go Pro.  It's a good inexpensive system for diving and other extreme stuffs.

I have UW housing for a 5D3 now but over the last 2 years I have also used a Canon D10 with great results. Small compact, cheap and great image quality. I prefer the D10 over the newer D20...

If you are interested in nothing but snorkeling, I have had good luck with my Sony TX20 without a housing at all.  Just make sure that you clean and oil the orings before you go and NEVER take the camera to the beach as a grain of sand will kill it.  Unfortunately, this is true with any underwater camera.  It was definitely nerve wracking the first time I tried it but even free diving ~10 feet I didn't have any issues and the camera has a built in red filter that helps if the sun is behind a cloud.  Biggest problem is that the touch screen doesn't work under water. 

Stewart - All great advice and love the clown fish pics!
