Walk around in Junon like you did before. Keep walking as if you were heading for the docks. When you enter a room which seems to be a narrow hallway with a whistling sound, head south. Further into that room you will notice a door, enter and you'll find yourself in an elevator. There you will encounter the Submarine Crew. After a quick battle, you will be able to proceed. After exiting the elevator, you will again face the Submarine Crew. Keep heading down the hallways until you reach an elevator; take it down. Proceed down the hallway after that.

You will find yourself in the underwater pipes. It is a good idea to fight around here until you encounter the Ghost Ship. Take the time to morph this enemy and you will receive the δGuide Book. This item is important for later. Keep heading down the hallway until you reach a room with glass tubes on the side. There is a button across from where you entered, push it and head back out. Keep heading to the exits until you reach the submarine docks. You will have to fight more members of the Submarine Crew, along with a batch of Underwater MP in the next room.

You will soon find youself face to face with the Huge Materia. Before you can do anything, it is picked up on a crane and loaded onto a submarine. After witnessing the Huge Materia being loaded into the Submarine, Reno will send distractions your way.

Strategy
 
Be cautious with this boss group, and keep your healer active and well. Pound on them with physical attacks, as well as OFire and OLightning. If you can, OTime your healer as well as your best physical fighter. As usual, the Big Guard and Regen/All combo is very helpful.

Notes
 

After the fight, you will notice that the red submarine is gone, and there's nothing for it but to chase it. Before heading to the next submarine, board the dock. You will see a chest containing a δBattle Trumpet. Now head towards that submarine. Before getting on the stairs, you should see two chests further down. The chest nearest to the stairs contains the δScimitar for Cid. This should be your first triple growth weapon. It comes in very useful for mastering materia.

The chest further from the stairs contains δLeviathan Scales. Be sure to pick them up, as they come in handy. Now head to the stairs. Before being able to get on, you will have to fight more members of the Submarine Crew. After entry, you will again fight the Submarine Crew. When you get to the bridge, you can either fight or take some soldiers prisoner, it really has no effect. Sit in the driver's seat and read the manual.

Buttons

  • Menu = Speed Up
  • Switch = Fire torpedo!
  • Cancel = Speed down

After reading the instructions and mission briefing, you are free to start the mission. Your mission objective is to sink the red submarine, which happily appears right in front of you at the beginning of the mission.

Before you have a chance to drive, you will have to go to the Junon Airport. Go there immediatly. You will witness a plane leaving the airport heading to Rocket Town. This will be your next destination, but there are a couple of other things you might want to do before heading there. Get back to your submarine.

You might see Emerald Weapon swimming around down there, but DO NOT get close to it until you are truly ready. It is impossible to defeat him at this point, unless you did an insane amount of leveling up.

After submerging, turn left and hug the side walls. You will eventually see a red sumbarine. Just get close to it and you will receive the Huge Materia.

There is also a bay close to the Gold Saucer, and this is where the sunken plane Gelnika can be found. There are also a lot of strong enemies in there, but it is suggested you do it as soon as possible.
