Logistics From Punta Arenas to El Calafate

My husband and I are headed to South American in January for a 2.5 week trip. I have all the flights and hotels set, but I am now working on the finer details, such as buses. On Wednesday, January 15, we need to get from Punta Arenas to El Calafate. We have allotted the whole day for transport, although we do not want to take any overnight buses. I have found the following buses so far:

Bus Sur:
Leaves Punta Arenas at 7 AM, arrives Puerto Natales at 10:15 AM or
Leaves Punta Arenas at 8:30 AM, arrives Puerto Natales at 11:45 AM

Leaves Puerto Natales at 2 PM, arrives El Calafate at 7 PM
(there is no Bus Sur afternoon bus on Wednesdays)

My questions:

1. Is my bus plan the best, or do you have other ideas?

2. We would prefer to take the later bus from Punta Arenas to Puerto Natales, but does that allow sufficient time to catch the afternoon bus?

3. Is there sufficient time, assuming we take the later bus, to taxi into Puerto Natales and have lunch there?

4. What time do we need to be back at the Puerto Natales bus station (I am getting tickets in advance)?

Thank you in advance!
