my G11 and now it is time to accessorize. What would be a
realistic size for a two dive day? I would not want to run out
of space, but I want a separate card for each day as I don't
have room for a laptop. I also shoot only in raw.

I am always paranoid about loosing/damaging a card with hundreds of images on it. With a 4gb card you will "make" yourself change out the card after a two tank dive.

Looks for the sweet spot in price, and go for it. If you want to use the cards with your next camera or in another device, don't bother with cards that are undersized by today's standards, even if they would probably work fine short term. (2gb cards fall into this category)
I'm a fan of Sandisk Extreme III cards, look for class 6 or 10, but don't spend TOO much on the fastest cards unless you know your camera can take advantage of the speed... unless you know you'll be using the cards in an eventual upgrade to DSLR which can use the extra speed.
