flying to Galapagos short notice

After doing a bit of research, we have decided probably to fly independently to the Galapagos islands and book a few days boat cruise from there and then do some diving while on one of the islands. However, I am now wondering if it is too short notice to wait till we arrive in Quito mid March to book a flight to the islands a few days later?

Also, I have heard that Baltra airport will be closed sometime in March, I do not know why or for how long. But my question is, if we fly to San Cristobal, can we then arrange a cruise from there, and then go to Santa Cruz somehow to be based at Puerto Ayora which seems to be the best place for diving? Otherwise, is there another airport on the Galapagos islands where there are flights from Quito? Many thanks for any advice.
