"The enraged goddess Calypso gathered the waters of the ocean around herself in a giant whirlpool–a massive maelstrom–and a battle raged at the center of it."

A maelstrom is a very powerful whirlpool; a large, swirling body of water. A free vortex, it has considerable downdraft. The most notable was the massive maelstrom created by the sea goddess Calypso.

After being released from her human form, the goddess Calypso, enraged over Davy Jones's betrayal and the Brethren Court, used her powers to summon a maelstrom. Calypso's maelstrom consisted of an enormous whirlpool topped with a thunderstorm with strong wind, lightning and rain. At the heart of this maelstrom, a battle raged between the Black Pearl and the Flying Dutchman. After the death of Davy Jones, the maelstrom subsided.[1]
