It's just me, but I'd say travelling at warp puts more stress on a hull then sitting a few meters underwater (and I suppose that because Kirk and McCoy were able to swim down from the surface with no real scuba gear.
Oh god, that's another problem with it. If the Enterprise is as big as they say, they wouldn't even have been able to dive that deep. And then they would have needed several hours in a decompression chamber.
