Regardless of where you’re at - probably Mt. Pyre or Lilycove, maybe Route 123 - Fly to Slateport City so you can continue on with the storyline.
When you arrive, head northeast to the harbor area near the entrance to Route 110. As you approach the crowd, there will be a scene in which Team Aqua/Magma arrives and steals the submarine. Oh no! After Stern goes in, follow him in.
You’ll meet with your enemy team’s leader, who will conveniently mention their hideout in Lilycove before setting some Grunts on you. After, leave for Lilycove alongside Stern, who seems to have his own private boat. Maybe you rode on his back all the way there?
Heal up in the Pokémon Center, then head down to the beach. Surf northeastward into the cove.
