    It depends on the type of whale!

    Humpback whales are estimated to live for up to 40 years.

    Gray whales are estimated to live for up to 30 or 40 years. Sometimes they can live up to 60 years of age.

    Blue whales are estimated to live up to 80 years of age.

    Fin whales are estimated ot live up to 85 – 90 years of age.

    As you can see, there is a wide range of lifespans for whales that starts around 30 and ends at just under 100 years of age.

    The average lifespan of a whale depends on the species. Beluga whales live an average of 35-50 years in the wild. But that number seems tiny to the blue whale, which can live 80-90 years! The Orca, or Killer Whale as you may know it by, is in the middle at 50-80 years.
