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

It was my 1st time and it was just incredible!! This company is the best in Vegas and they were really professional about everything they did. My guide was John, he had tons of experience doing it and was a pro all along explaining anything I wanted to know and making sure I'm having fun and filming it of course!... More

I hate flying, heights, everything. I was absolutely petrified of doing my jump but everyone at Skydive Las Vegas couldn't have been more helpful. It is not something I would do again any time soon. But to anyone who has said to me that they are thinking of doing one, I couldn't recommend it enough. The best part for me,... More

this was my second time skydiving and the first for my fiancee. After being picked up near Mandalay Bay we were whisked out to Boulder City for our jump. Both of our instructors were very friendly and easy to talk to. Were not overly pushy on the DVD/picture sales, although my partner did purchase the pictures (I did not). Everything... More

What a great experience! Although very nervous, a couple of us decided to try out skydiving at Skydive Las Vegas. The whole experience was great (apart from the signing your life away disclaimer bit....) Very professional team that run it, made you feel totally safe. If you have thought maybe - do it here they were great

Amazing experience, highly professional staff, the ultimate Adrenalin rush! Never at any point did I feel unsafe, despite having to sign a raft of disclaimers beforehand. If you are thinking of skydiving for the first time, I would highly recommend it!
