It does & just like chalk it sinks once the water fills enough of the "caves" inside it although with the pumice floating for a much longer time than chalk it's not worth arguing in a pub quiz. pirat

Although if you wish to be a smart arse.....as a side-note, You can pick up pieces pumice from the seabed in at places like Lake Taupo which was formed by a massive volcano and is part of the Volcanic Plateau in NZ  Very Happy    
Try making a sailboat as kids do out of pumice and you'll find out.......woods better lol!
