Answer
Yes.  I think it is not a technical matter but a design decision of there is market for it.

Challenge it keeping the lens free of moisture and still being visually clear through outer water  proof covering.

Waterproof is a restrictive term requiring tough design parameters to keep moisture out under rigid conditions.  Water resistant is a less restrictive term used by many manufacturers.

To obtain waterproof status it must be encompassed by a hermetically sealed cover or shroud.  Waterproofing adds sever cost to the product.

But, it is possible to do.  Marine industry would be very interested it such a device.

Doing a google shopping search will result in showing a few such devices already in the market.
