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.
