As Atoll suggests, the cyclone season is 'officially' over in April; BUT the risk of a march cyclone between the Galapagos
is very low - they don't typically come that far east and the Galapagos
are right on the equator so in the worst case you can always turn north and get right out of the path. I personally would be ok with a March departure from the Galapagos. The last time we did that route
we left March 25th, but I would still be fine with a week or two earlier earlier.
Just fyi . . . when you leave the Galapagos, quite often you need to get a day or so south before you pick up the trade
