In Fall 2012, HAWAII Magazine asked their 200,000 print-edition readers and their website readers to share their “Hawaii’s Best” selections in more than 60 categories. The 50,000 votes were compiled into the inaugural HAWAII Magazine Readers’ Choice Awards that appear in the March/April issue of the magazine.
The categories cover favorites among hotels and resorts; Hawaiian islands and towns; ways to get to Hawaii; ways to get around while here; shopping, activities; and, of course, dining and cuisine. In the category of Helicopter Tour Company, Blue Hawaiian Helicopters was voted “Hawaii’s Best.”
This prestigious new award adds to Blue Hawaiian’s impressive track record of being voted the best in its industry. For six years running, 2007 through 2012, Blue has been voted Maui’s “Best Air Activity” by readers of the award-winning “The Maui News;” since it began operations on Kauai in 2008, Blue has been voted “Kauai’s Best” in the Kauai People/MidWeek Kauai readers choice poll four times; Blue has been voted the “Best of the Best” by the readers of “West Hawaii Today” a record twelve times since 2001; for each of the last thirteen years beginning in year 2000, Blue has been voted “Best Air Tour” of East Hawaii by the readers of the Hawaii Tribune-Herald; and in the relatively new North Hawaii News’ Reader’s Choice awards, Blue has been voted “Best Air Tour” each of the past four years (2009-2012) since the poll began.
