Aliens that are capable of comming to Earth are not moss or algae, but sentient beings, fabricators of such crafts and engineers of such travel systems.

It's an interesting idea. Just because we cant' communicate with whales and similar (presumably) highly-intelligent sea-creatures might not mean that some other extraterrestrial race couldn't.
However, I think they will talk to us first. We're the most "obvious" species on the planet. Obvious, in the sense that our presence is easily noted 1) from deep space (radio signals), 2) from low orbit (lighted cities at night, and larger structures/cities during the day), and 3) those few dozen or so atomic blasts over the last half-century or so would probably have gotten somebody's attention.

Now that you mention the atomic blasts, what if they are a peace loving race, and don't like nuclear bombs? Then that might give them a reason to contact the whales instead, since the whales DIDN"T detonate any atomic bombs.
And that is exactly the reason they will talk to us, like i said before?
If they are peace loving and want us to stop detonating bombs, then why talk to a specie that have never done that, dont have the intelligence and capability's to do it?
