The Quiz: What type of whale has the fastest cruising speed at 23 mph?
Nicknamed “greyhounds of the deep,” the sleek fin whale is one of the ocean’s fastest whales. The sei whale can sprint faster, reaching 40 mph in short bursts, but it cannot sustain that speed for long. Making the fin whales’ speed even more impressive, it is the second largest whale, hurling its 80 tons of weight through the ocean.
The correct answer to this quiz is Fin Whale.
