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. « less

We went to Vegas to celebrate a friend's birthday and three of us went on our first skydive. It was great! We were staying at Mandalay Bay and the shuttle picked us up at the McDonalds which was right across the street. Our jump guides were very personable and interactive. We went up in groups of six. I was last... More

I did my first jump ever about two years ago with Skydive Las Vegas and my second in March. Both were great! I checked out some of the negative reviews, thinking how bad could it be if you're alive to write a review. Seems lots of pick up issues which I can't comment on since I drove. Anyway, the gents...

Before I booked my skydive I read all the reviews to see if anyone that jumped had motion sickness and how it worked out for them. Unfortunately there were none. I have severe motion sickness and was concerned about how I would do both in the plane and during the jump. I told my tandem instructor (TI) when I got... More

My son and I visited Skydive Las Vegas over the July 4th weekend. He did the dive and I reserved a spot as an observer in the co-pilot's seat. The whole visit was first-class from start to finish. The instructors and pilot were great. I would highly recommend this company. We arrived on our own at 7:30AM for an 8AM... More
