Skydive Las Vegas -- the first-time skydive experts. Jump out of our perfectly good airplane, freefall at 120 MPH, then enjoy the parachute flight while taking in spectacular views of the Hoover Dam, Lake Mead, the Colorado River and the Las Vegas Strip. Skydive Las Vegas has been in operation since 1993 and is Nevada's longest running student skydiving center and the first to specialize in first-time tandem skydiving. We are located at the Boulder City Airport in Boulder City which is only minutes away from the Hoover Dam and Lake Mead. When you are in the airplane and in freefall you can see the Hoover Dam, Lake Mead, the Colorado River, the beautiful golf courses of Boulder City, the Las Vegas Strip, Mt. Charleston, Red Rock Canyon, the Valley of Fire and more! Our landing zone is located right next to our facility making it easy for your friends and family watch you jump and land right in from of them. After landing, you walk right back into our facility and celebrate the most exciting thing you've ever done. We use only the finest state-of-the-art equipment and airplanes. We fly new PAC-750XL skydiving airplane that can carry up to 7-8 tandem jumpers (14-16 people) per load. The PAC-750XL is the only airplane in the world built specifically for skydiving. Our skydiving equipment is the latest and safest available today. We offer complimentary transportation from the Las Vegas Strip in pristine shuttle vans. We have the largest and nicest skydiving facility in Nevada, complete with a large air-conditioned lobby, restrooms, HD television for your viewing pleasure, snack and soda machines, and most importantly a Starbucks Coffee machine that brews fresh ground Starbucks coffee.

The instructors were all very good and skydiving was amazing, but the video I payed $100 for didn't turn out. Apparently the camera wasn't turned on to catch the free fall experience and it got turned on after the parachute opened. They gave me the pictures for free, but I obviously would like the video that I payed for.

This is the best thing I have ever done. The instructors are knowledgable, experienced and funny. They understand people are scared but their jokes are funny and put you at ease. As soon as you, secured tightly to the instructor, are out of the plane, you are going to wonder why you did not do this years ago. This is... More

I would recommend skydiving with this company to everyone. All of the employees were very helpful. My instructor, Kyle made me very comfortable, even though I was very nervous. I was still nervous but felt very safe the entire time.I loved it and am looking forward to doing it again someday.
