I have a Pentax W20 (waterproof) and take it on all my Alaska float trips. Awesome camera. A newer model is out not. Perhaps the W30 or W60. Go to B&H Photo/Video website and put that in the search box. Great images and it is 100% waterproof. Many of the guys in Alaska use it to take underwater fish pictures.

I have a Pentax W30 (7mp), highly recommended for boating and skiing. The newer model is the W60 - 10mp and better cold weather performance.

Only complaint is that the flash on mine is a bit weak. But it's been buried in lots of river waves and works great outdoors.
