my friend does surf photography professionally, and uses a Canon DSLR. i forget the actual make, but he tells me his underwater housing costs way more than just the DSLR. [around $1000] and since he mainly does photography at the surface of the water...i don't know how deep the housing will actually go.
if you plan to go deep....i really doubt you'll find any non-analogue film options for less than $1000. especially if you are going to want an underwater flash to capture the smaller sea creatures.
also....i really doubt this is the best place to ask this question. hopefully you asked it in a forum related to diving instead of iphone photography. ;]

i personally skin dive/open water swim and carry around a 35mm camera strapped around my torso. i really like the film cameras i have and would definitely recommend them....but i can see reloading film being a problem at greater depths.
BUT one thing you should never do as a photographer is buy all your equipment at once. there are many places that rent out photography equipment. and i know for a fact that there are some dive stores that actually rent out camera equipment. its definitely cheaper just to rent it....then go ahead and buy it if you dont wanna go through that hassle, or can see a good return on your investment.
