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.

Great experience

I had such a great experience I started AFF back home. I can't get enough of the canopy ride. The instructor handed me the toggles and let me take control for a bit.

1st time skydiving and so glad I chose this company!! The staff were all great to deal with but more importantly my instructor was awesome! Professional yet had me laughing while in the plane so I wouldn't be so nervous. He took so many super cool pictures of the scenery and the jump itself. Everything went perfectly including the landing... More

This was my second jump, so I wasn't going for the novelty of it, but bc I like it (and don't want to do the work it takes to learn to jump solo). It was a lower height than my first dive, so a quicker one, but Luke made more the best of it: He gauged my likes without even... More

I can't say enough good things about this company! Very professional and detail oriented without taking any of the fun out of the experience. We were picked up right off the strip, given paperwork and a video to watch on the ride to the drop zone (made the ride feel very short)...and once we were there it was like clockwork.... More

This company is awesome. They can pick you up close to the strip in Vegas if needed which is great. The company was very safety conscious and professional. My guide was great and I liked his sense of humour. Would def recommend this to anyone visiting Vegas.

Before going to Vegas, I had decided that skydiving was something I wanted to do. Skydive Las Vegas was recommended by Hotel Tropicana where I was staying. My daughter and I drove out to the site and were briefed, including a video, on what to do when the jump actually happened. I felt confident in the careful preparation that was... More

You are never really prepared for it. And For someone who hates flying or heights, it was still an excellent experience. I loved it.

This was my third attempt at skydiving, as both of my previous attempts at The Palm in Dubai, were cancelled due to high winds, and it was no disappointment! I absolutely loved it! My skydive instructor (Luke) was so relaxed throughout the whole experience, it made me feel the most relaxed I ever have during a high adrenaline activity. The... More
