While SCUBA diving you are wearing a fabric vest that is known as your boucency compensator or your B.C. This also happens to be the vest that keeps your tank attached to your back. When you wish to float to the surface, you slowly put air (from your tank) into your BC. The air released in the vest is much less dense than the water and thus it travels to the surface pulling you with it.
