If mainly for underwater photography, it's a no-brainer. Get the Ixus.
The underwater casing for S30 does not allow you to switch the camera off (ie it's on all the time), while the one for the ixus will. So your S30 will be burning batteries until the crucial moment you want to take that shot of a lifetime, then the battery will die.
