“Captain Blubber's pride and joy, the Salty Hippo first appeared in Banjo-Kazooie's Treasure Trove Cove. It has never been seen in good working order, possibly due to its useless hippo captain.”
Banjoland description, Nuts & Bolts

The Salty Hippo is the ship of Captain Blubber the sea hippo (hence the name) that crashed ashore on Treasure Trove Cove in Banjo-Kazooie. Captain Blubber asks Banjo to swim into the lower areas of the ship and retrieve his treasure in exchange for a Jiggy. At the top of the ship up the cargo netting is a Bottles molehill in which Kazooie is taught how to Fly. Conveniently, there is a Flight Pad next to the molehill near the top of the mast. At the very top of the mast, there is a green Jinjo.

In Banjo-Tooie, there is sunken ship at the bottom of an underwater cavern of Jolly Roger's Lagoon. Many players believed it is the Salty Hippo. However, during the Tower of Tragedy quiz, "The Salty Hippo" appears as an incorrect answer to a question regarding the ship's name. The correct answer is "It has no name."

In Banjo-Kazooie: Nuts & Bolts, The Salty Hippo appears in Banjoland, half-sunken in the lake with only a net keeping it together.
