Maelstrom

"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."
―Unknown[src]

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.

History[]

"Maelstrom!"
"Captain Barbossa! We need you at the helm."
"...Aye, that be true.
"
Joshamee Gibbs, Elizabeth Swann and Hector Barbossa[src]

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]
