i would say no. Nickel is a heavy metal.

you could always incase it in some epoxy. make a small mold out of something and then embed the magnets in the mold filled with epoxy. wait 24 hours than you are good to go. fiberglass resin would also work. this is how all of the big manufacturers do it. my guess is if they are not exposing the nickel coated nydinmium magnets to the water their must be a good reason.
