Luggage Storage in Ushuaia

We are doing an expedition in February 2015 and on the day of disembarkation our flight to BA does not depart until mid afternoon. We plan do some NP sightseeing in the morning. What do you do with your luggage? Does the expedition company have facilities? Are there storage places in Ushuaia?

Which company are you travelling with ? There are various luggage storage facilities around the town and each company has different agreements. The day before disembarkation you will be given all the information regarding your luggage - for those flying out early, later, and staying in hotels. Generally you are given different coloured tags for the bags depending on which category you are.

Pretty sure Chimu used the same storage place that Peregrine used - otherwise its all unloaded to the hotel that the majority of passengers are staying at (90% is the Albatross) and left in a secure location till the flights.

But its not something you need to worry about - its all sorted out the day before you leave the ship - you are just one of many doing the exact same thing that day.

The Albatross is fully pro at dealing with expedition passengers and gazillions of luggage as it has new batches arriving twice daily. Its a well oiled machine there.

MS Expedition does have luggage facilities. In 2012, it was in Ushuaia, down the street and up the hill from Hotel Albatros. Originally my bag was tagged for storage, but I had to ride out to the facility and grab it and dash to the airport on standby due to a schedule change from Aerolineas Argentina. I believe everyone has to identify their bag outside the facility before they store them so you know 1) that it made it off the ship and 2) where to pick it up.
