This is a peculiar trial as there appears to be no Captain around to facilitate it. Explore the site on your own and you'll soon run into the Totem Pokémon.

Walk past the gates to enter what looks like an empty trial site. There may not be a Captain here, but you’ll still have to defeat the Totem Pokémon to progress.
Explore the area and before you know it, a Jangmo-o will swoop down from above. Defeat the Pokemon and then pick up TM02 (Dragon Claw) in the crevice on the right. Continue walking until and a Hakamo-o will soon spring out at you.
Hang in there, the Z-Crystal is almost close enough to touch now! Ready your team for battle and walk up to the pedestal ahead. Reach out to grab the Z-Crystal to watch Totem Kommo-o crash down in front of you and let the battle commence.

Totem Kommo-o will put up a pretty good fight. Its aura raises all of its stats and it will use Protect to evade your moves, with the chance of your moves failing increasing every time it uses that move in a row.
Totem Kommo-o can call the following allies:
After you have defeated Totem Kommo-o and its accompanying allies, the Dragonium Z is yours for the taking. Grab it from the pedestal and exit the trial site.

Before heading to the Altar of the Sunne / Altar of the Moone, its worth returning to Seafolk Village to pick up a few Heart Scales. It’s a good idea to rest your Pokémon in the Pokémon Center and stock up on whichever items you need now.
Head to the Floating Restaurant and order the Zumongous Z-Noodles. Hapu will appear and sits with you. She kindly offers to pay for your meal and will also hand you two Heart Scales before you leave.
Your next stop is the Altar of the Sunne / Altar of the Moone, which is located just beyond Vast Poni Canyon.
