It really depends on how waterproof you need the camera to be.

Most waterproof PnS can go to around 3 meters. And a few can go to 10 meters. Here are some recommendations (a little old though).

If you want to go deeper for diving you will have to buy the dedicated underwater housings for a specific cam.

As for DSLR, good underwater housings for diving will run into the thousands with different attachments for different lenses. It will definitely cost more than your D90. It really depends on how you find the pricing justifiable.
