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.

I have to start by saying that I am glad I did my jump. It was fun and I had a good time. But all of the "Terrible" reviews about the staff and procedures hold true. I was booked to jump with my brother on my birthday. He had been wanting to jump for years, and had finally psyched himself... More

I booked a surprise skydive for my husband on the morning of our wedding and it was amazing... The best experience of his life.. Apart from marrying me after it :-) The company were flawless and we would highly recommend them. It's a shame there's not more of this kind of service in the UK

Just did my first jump and all I can say is amazing, wish I had done this a long time ago. Everything went smoothly when signing in and prepping for the jump. All the staff was super excited and helpful. Would definitely go again. Brilliant day.

Well this was a bucket list item for me so I was very excited,and anxious!!! They have a great facility, very friendly staff, and made me feel quite confident in their knowledge despite the fact that I was going to plunge towards earth from a perfectly good airplane. I wound up doing 3 jumps in 10 months time. The hard... More

I had a great experience. The only thing someone might need to know that was not spoken about in the other reviews I read: They pick you up at a McDonalds that is on one end of the strip, so if you are not staying close, a taxi ride is a must. Then my husband was not diving, but was... More

This truly was an amazing experience; my partner and I and another couple did tandem sky dives in sep 2014. It truly topped off the Vegas experience! The staff were friendly and reassuring and put you at ease, I'm a bit of an adrenaline junkie so couldn't wait to do the jump. We also bought DVDs of our jumps, great... More
