Where's Island 3,4,5, and 6 ?

Four new Island Class BC Ferries made their way to British Columbia
from Romania, making the transatlantic voyage under their own power in approximately 60 days.
The approximately 19,800 KM journey included stops for refuelling, first in Tenerife, Canary Islands
then in Balboa, Panama after transiting the Panama Canal. The vessels then sailed up the west coast of
North America, arriving at Point Hope Maritime in Victoria, B.C.
