Probably. However the power levels used when transmitting would be much lower than with a mobile phone. The operating frequencies are also higher (typically 2.4GHz and around 5GHz I think) which maybe less penetrative. 2.4GHz does not pass through water very well (near absorption resonance) so this may also help though I expect it may be argued that this causes more heating locally.
