I enjoy my Nikon AW100. I wanted a camera that could stand up to salt spray. I have been impressed with the HD video quality, and I think the camera takes good still photos. The camera is waterproof to 10 meters. I recommend that you search vimeo.com for video samples of the cameras you consider buying.
One benefit of the AW100 (and other similar cameras) over the GoPro (at least the GoPro models/housings that I have used): one doesn't need to use an audio-impeding waterproof housing for the AW100. If you want your videos to have audio and you want the camera to be waterproof when you shoot those videos, consider the AW100. (Maybe GoPro now has a waterproof housing that doesn't impede audio pick up -- or a camera that doesn't need a housing to be waterproof -- I don't know.)
