    Yes, whales are loud when they talk and blue whales are the loudest creatures on Earth. They emit highly structured, repetitive low-frequency rumbling songs that can travel many miles underwater. Some of their vocalizations have been recorded at 188 decibels and can be heard over 530 miles away. The threshold of pain in the human ear is between 120 and 130 decibels, and a commercial jet taking off is 120-140 decibels. Whales make these sounds to communicate with other blue whales, especially for attracting mates.
