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 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

This was both of ours first jump and naturally we were bricking it! But the guys we jumped with were amazing. Mine cracked a few jokes along the lines of "... Do you want to know how long we can free fall for? ...till we hit the ground!!" I mean you can see why he jumps out of a plane... More

First day was cancelled due to high winds, we were kept well informed and ultimately got the cancellation at the shuttle pick up. Rebooked for the following day, we were collected on time, the transfer was shorter than expected and comfortable. I found staff friendly and fun, the experience was excellent and when our DVD was broken in my suitcase... More

If you intend to skydive in Las Vegas you have to do it with this company. They were excellent even from the driver who picked us up. They were all so polite and helpful from beginning to end and of course the sky dive was awesome.

I’m not skydiving expert however having done my first skydive with Skydive Las Vegas on Sat 4th April I’d highly recommend them. I only booked 5 days before my jump date, my booking confirmation and information was emailed quickly, when I called the afternoon before to reconfirm my booking (as they request you do) phone was answered immediately and the...

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
