The density of fresh water is 1.0. Anything with a density less than 1.0 will float; anything with a density higher than 1.0 will sink.

Objects with densities a little less than 1 will float with most of the volume below the surface; objects with very low densities - like a ping-pong ball - will float mostly on top of the water. Human beings have a density very close to 1.0, so we barely float.

Some golf balls are designed to float. Some golf courses offer practice ranges where golfers hit from the practice tee (ith floating balls) into a lake or pond.
