When we created Whale Talk Magazine, we had a vision of creating a superb quality publication, filled with interesting and relevant lifestyle articles, showcasing the very best of the Hermanus and Overstrand area - in essence - a celebration of our town and its people.

Now, nine years later we are proud to say we have lived up to our goal of creating an informative publication filled with fascinating content that is an asset to our town and its people and we are also proud to say that we are the longest standing local magazine in Hermanus.

The response to our publication has been nothing short of phenomenal, with floods of emails and telephone calls being received when every edition hits the shelves. We are delighted to say that our advertisers receive a fabulous response from appearing in our publication which is wonderful and is due to the fact that the magazine is such a quality publication, printed in full colour on 150g gloss paper (which increases the longevity of an advert as the magazine is not discarded, but kept and referred to again and again), it is filled with excellent articles and graphics (Whale Talk is not a book of adverts but has lots of interesting things that you can sit down and read) and the volume of magazines printed make sure that our publication is seen everywhere (10 000 magazines that are printed bi-monthly and spread throughout Hermanus and surrounding areas to carefully selected distribution points)

We have a website which receives many hits a day and can be seen at www.whaletalk.co.za and all our advertisers appear there free of charge.

"We do hope that you choose to advertise with us and if you have any questions or would like us to visit you in person, please contact us!"
