I have used chocolate molds to do this before. I have a few cakes on my website.

I have brought shell molds in the candy and soap areas of Michael's and Hobby Lobby. I use white chocolate to make them look more realistic.

I too will be making a scuba/sea cake in a few weeks and I just purchased several chocolate molds in the "sea" theme from www.candymoldcentral.com.
Please post a picture when you're done.

I made starfish out of gumpaste. I then took a fondant gumpaste tool (the one with a hook type end, but any one to create a round shape worked), and made little holes in the starfish to add texture.

How big of a starfish are you looking for?

I just did a beach themed cake last week and used chocolate molds for the shells. I did some solid white and I also put a couple of pieces of light cocoa chips and swirled it for a more realistic look. There's a pic in my album.

The candy molds are awesome for shells, starfish, etc. I've also found larger starfish and shells in the soap mold section at Hobby Lobby (Michael's, etc.).

I just got some seashell molds from firstimpressionmolds.com the detail is AMAZING. The seashells look totally real. I think if I picked them up I could hear the ocean.

First Impression Molds has a ton of great sea-type molds.
