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've been to a bunch of different jump centers and this is the worst by far! Most of the staff was very RUDE and arrogant! The training was all but non existent. The instructors were cocky. After my son's jump, he started to unbuckle his harness and a jumpmaster went ballistic and threatened him that if his harness hits the... More

My first time..... really ecstatic. My wife and I enjoyed it. The instructor was very friendly and made the dive comfortable. Just follow their instructions and you will not be afraid. Recommend to go twice if you can! Best Wishes from Mumbai!

I have always wanted to go skydiving but always weighed to much.After getting to almost 400lbs I chose to have bariatric surgery 10 months ago and told myself if I got under the 240lb limit I would go skydiving. Well now 6'5" and 230lb I've achieved it and yesterday I went skydiving and it was the BEST EXPERIENCE EVER! They... More

I was there on March 16, 2015 and everything went perfectly! I took my son for his 21st birthday and we had the time of our lives! The instructors were great and our videos were perfect. Mauro, my instructor, made it an experience to remember. I would jump with him again in a heartbeat. I enjoyed it so much that... More

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.

What a truly amazing experience! 1st time skydiving and the staff made it really easy and fun. My instructor was friendly and professional, in other words, great! They have a free shuttle service to and from the south end of the strip. They get a big thumbs up from me and I'll be sure to recommend them to anyone going... More

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
