Best waterproof case for iPhone

We just ruined an iPhone 4 when it fell into the ocean. Before we spend the money to replace it we would like recommendations for a waterproof case. Guess, it's better late than never! Thanks

Does the Tough Case float? It seems otherwise ideal (aside from the $$$, that is).

I was given an "i-dry' for free from my yacht club and it seems to work quite well.

How about a piece of duct tape and a yard of light line? Duct tape one end of the line to the back of your iphone, and tie off the other end to your belt loop. An advantage over a floater case is that with a lanyard your phone never leaves the boat, meaning no tacking to return to collect it after it drops overboard.

x2 on the lifeproof case. Seems to be the slimmest of the bunch.
