A whale is a term borrowed from casino gamblers. It means a trader with a substantial amount of capital, usually one who is bullish (believes prices will rise) on the price of a specific cryptocurrency. These people are also referred to as bullish whales. Whales are often the market movers for small illiquid altcoins due to their huge capital.
