West Hawaii’s clear blue waters this week offered up big fun, smiles and fish for two keiki visiting Hawaii Island through the Make-A-Wish Foundation.

The boys, Addison Kleinhans, 9, visiting from Colorado, and Elias Norton, 8, visiting from Massachusetts, who both were diagnosed with acute lymphoblastic leukemia, each spent about a week with their parents and a sibling enjoying some of what Hawaii Island has to offer from sportfishing, surfing and snorkeling to swimming with dolphins and manta ray, checking out the world’s most active volcano and flying in a helicopter deep into valleys along the Hamakua Coast.
