The pressure on the whale at a depth of 2500 meters under the ocean surface is $2.52\times 10^7~Pa$
We can find the pressure at a depth of 2500 m under the ocean surface: $P_{abs} = P_{atm}+P_g$ $P_{abs} = P_{atm}+\rho~gh$ $P_{abs} = (1.01\times 10^5~N/m^2)+(1025~kg/m^3)(9.80~m/s^2)(2500~m)$ $P_{abs} = 2.52\times 10^7~N/m^2$ The pressure on the whale at a depth of 2500 meters under the ocean surface is $2.52\times 10^7~Pa$.
