    I was recently informed of the passing of my former Employer, Chris Davies, Owner of Octopus Diving and Caribbean Technical Diving which occurred yesterday April 10th 2018 in a non-diving related manner.

    I worked for Chris for 2.5 years. Chris gave me my start in the Technical Diving world and was my first IT. For his training and mentorship, I will always be grateful. He was a skilled engineer and if he couldn't fix it, it wasn't broken. Chris will be missed by his friends and customers throughout the diving world.

    Please feel free to share memories below.

    What happened? I dove with Octopus when in St. Martin and I know they were having problems before the Hurricanes.

    He took me on my first dive. Really an amazing man. He will be missed. Any idea how or why he passed?

    Although I don't know Chris personally, I have always been impressed with the quality of the business(es) he has build.

    Dove with Octopus a few years back. Good Guy. Hope the best for those who he called friends and family.

    I worked with Chris one season. He did an outstanding job building Octopus Diving and did a lot for the diving community in St Martin. He will be greatly missed. RIP Chris
