Numerous whirlpools dot the zee, appearing as named locations on maps. I have confirmed by sailing close to one that they do suck you in, but I've not dared to actually sail into one. What happens if I do?

    There's at least one special whirlpool that will kill you.

    There doesn't appear to be anything unique about Dathooley's Rage in the game files, or any evidence that any whirlpool is capable of OHKOing a ship with at least a reasonable amount of hull left.

It appears that whirlpools will slowly damage your hull, which is explained rather extensively here on Reddit. You can get stuck in a whirlpool if your engine isn't strong enough, but on the plus-side: enemy ships can also have this problem.

This user on the steam forums was letdown that the whirlpools only slowly damage your hull.
