Are Boston water taxis shared rides?

I am staying at the Hyatt Regency Boston Harbor (which is basically at Logan) and I was browsing the reviews online since I have never stayed there before and there are a bunch of very positive mentions of water taxis among the reviews.

Investigating these further I am a little fuzzy on the details and the operator websites are hardly illuminating and seem deliberately vague. However I note that all the fares are flat rate per passenger rather than by distance and that is making me visualize a floating blue airport van that could be making innumerable stops along the way.

Any first hand experiences?

I think there's more than one service now. You want the Rowes Wharf Water Taxi. This is the link: http://www.roweswharfwatertransport.com/ This is the boat that leaves from behind the Hyatt Logan and goes straight to Rowes Wharf and drops you at the Boston Harbor Hotel.

The regular water taxis can pick up multiple passengers at the same time.

Kinda depends on the "driver." Depending on the number of folks on the boat, he/she may ask the other passengers if they're in a rush or if it's okay to swing to another dock to pick up someone else.
