message Generally you will start to lose the colours from around 5-10m, even in tropical water with strong sunlight. Every camera is different, with my Canon S90 anything below about 6m will start to look washed out.

Question Do you mean that the special underwater setting (and software of course) of the Canon is no good ? And you only get good pictures with Flash and/or postprocess them with Photoshop/Gimp ?
So if

message It is good but there is a limit as to how much light (and therefore colour) can be captured. If you are going deeper, it is definitely worth investing in some strobes.

message I think Jenny is right, even in clear bright waters a strobe will bring colors out best at all depths. I haven't used the software you mention, but for a lot of people putting a red filter on the lens will warm the colors up for you, a lot of people shooting natural light will shoot RAW, then go into the white balance in Lightroom to make adjustments.. -it's a great camera- best wishes!
