Skydive Las Vegas has been in operation since 1993 and is the original Las Vegas skydiving center specializing in first-time tandem jumpers. Over the past 23 years, many skydive centers have come and gone, but none have been able to consistently offer the experience that Skydive Las Vegas does, along with safety, peace of mind, and of course, an adrenaline-pumping good time.

It’s a feeling like no other in this world – the feeling where solid footing gives way to freefall for an exhilarating 60-seconds before a parachute opens and the stunning views come into focus – and the staff at Skydive Las Vegas are strapped in and ready to deliver. Tandem Skydiving is the easiest, safest and by far the most popular way for beginners to skydive. It also provides the total introduction to skydiving from the ground up. Attached securely to a highly qualified and licensed tandem instructor via a dual harness system, jumpers get to experience the ride of their life and fly a parachute made for two.

With state of the art Sigma parachute equipment, and all instructors having thousands of jumps under their belts along with individual licensing by the United States Parachute Association, there’s no further thought required. You’ve come to the right place. Catch a free shuttle from the Las Vegas Strip to the Skydive Las Vegas hangar, where training and outfitting for the jump awaits. Then it’s 15,000 feet MSL (mean sea level) up to jump altitude.

During the airplane ride and skydive you can see: Lake Mead, Hoover Dam, Valley of Fire, Colorado River, Lake Mohave, Red Rock Canyon, Mt. Charleston and the entire Las Vegas Strip. The view is unbelievable. You and your instructor then jump and freefall at 120 to 140 mph (190 kph) for 50 to 60 seconds. After the parachute opens, there’s a 5 to 7 minute parachute ride where you will be able to help the instructor steer the parachute to the ground for a nice soft landing. Congratulations!
