Sort of a crap shoot. Might be fine, might not, but I'd bet on the not side. Personally, learned long ago it isn't worth riding through deep water for long hub/freehub/bb bearing life (without servicing more often, that is). Sooner can be better than later on addressing water intrusion past bearing seals. Me, I do the work myself, but if you're not comfortable with that, take it in...but a minute of pedaling under water is a lot.
