Galapagos Island recommendations

I searched and didn't see any prior posts on this topic (ignoring ads for "last minute deals").

We've got flights to GPS and accommodations booked for the second week of December. We're a family of 5 with kids ages 4, 8 and 10. We currently have nothing else reserved.

I've done research through Google, but thought some expats or locals might have advice I haven't come across. Any specific recommendations for the best experiences or lesser-known activities or experiences? Once we're on the island, do you have any advice on any particular day trips (on land or by boat) or techniques to get last-minute discounts (i.e. if we're there for 7 days, can we just walk down to the harbor each day and see who has empty seats they are looking to fill for cheap)?

Thanks in advance for any replies,

Carlos Peligro
