There was no one waiting for us, but if you wait at the right flag, a boat will come for you. Also, they couldn't scan the QR code (they didn't have a scanner), so it took some explaining. Got a physical ticket there for the rest of the day.

Wonderful experience- highly recommend! Easy to hop off the boat to the islands & spend as much time as you like exploring and then hop back on as a boat comes every hour on the hour to the same drop off location.
